The society meets the second Saturday of each month at 2:00 p.m. at the Tyler Public Library.  Interesting and informative programs help members and visitors with their genealogical research. Check the meetings page for any changes to this location.

The Computer Interest Group meetings, following the main meeting and refreshments, are of interest to those who use computers with their research.

Visitors are always welcome!


Are you descended from a pioneer who was living in Anderson, Gregg, Henderson, Panola, Rusk, or Smith counties when these counties were created? ETGS is recognizing these early settlers with "First Families of East Texas Certificates."
